What is nZEB?

nZEB stands for ‘nearly Zero Energy Buildings’, and is a high-performance building energy standard impacting residential and non-residential buildings, both new build and existing (retrofit).

The European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive  Recast  (EPBD) requires all new buildings to be Nearly Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) by 31st December 2020 and all buildings owned and occupied by public bodies by 31st December 2018.
